Here’s some tips for creating  an Easter party banner:

1. Indoor or Outdoor?

Banner placement determines, in part, both the size and material of your design. For example, if you are planning a large gathering and  are concerned about guests finding the party location, and large outdoor banner made of vinyl makes sense. On the other hand, if you are just looking for a banner to place on a wall in your home, church, or reception hall, a smaller cloth banner can be an excellent, durable choice.

 

2. Colors and Design

Easter is known for beautiful pastels, particularly green, pink and yellow. Consider a banner with a green or yellow background and contrasting lettering.  Add a bunny, basket and/or decorated eggs for consistent, festive theme.  If you choose a white background, make sure that your text and graphics are highly colorful so as to create an Easter-like feel.

Another thing to consider is the nature of the event and the preferences of the family or organization hosting the party. For example, a church or a very religious family may prefer religious symbolism to eggs and bunnies.

 

3. Family or Organization Name

Customize your banner with your family name or the name of the organization sponsoring the Easter party. This adds a personal touch, and is an instant identifier in photographs. This is also a great option for outdoor banners as it helps out of area drivers know that they’ve arrived at the right place.

4. Year

Think about whether you want to add the current year to your banner text. Adding the year pretty much relegates the banner to one-time use, which means that you’ll have to spend money on a new one next year. On the other hand, you can have fun displaying banners from the past at future gatherings.

 

5. Banner Size

Choose a banner size that either fits in the room where you’ll be holding the party,  or that is large enough to attract attention outdoors. If necessary, measure your walls to get an idea of what size banner will best fit your room. If you plan to rely on outdoor banner to identify your event to drivers, consider the placement of your banner before ordering. The further away from the street, the larger your banner needs to be.

 

6. Banner Storage

It’s important to store your banner properly after your Easter event. Always roll your banner, instead of folding it. Folding a banner creates permanent creases and can damage vinyl banner lettering. make sure the banner is completely dry before storing, to avoid mildew. Finally, place your banner a plastic bag or a secure container and place it in a climate controlled storage space.
